Description

The Center for Folklore Studies has received a $25,000  Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme (GAHDT) Centers Grant, for its project: “Revisioning Folklore Studies in the Academy and the Public Square.” This project represents a collaborative effort with the American Folklore Society to develop a learning community during the 2021-22 academic year that will bring together students, faculty and professionals working in the public folklore arena to reexamine our canon; interrogate the public/academic divide in our society; and develop our antiracist practice.  Please consider applying to our learning community.  Stay posted for more on the application process. 

The project leadership group: Phyllis May-Machunda, Selina Morales, Amanda Dargan, Rossina Zamora Liu, Solimar Otero, Norma Cantú, and Katherine Borland.
